Emotion Diarization with WavLM Large on 5 popular emotional datasets.

This repository provides all the necessary tools to perform speech emotion diarization with a fine-tuned wavlm (large) model using SpeechBrain.

The model is trained on concatenated audios and tested on ZaionEmotionDataset. The metric is Emotion Diarization Error Rate (EDER). For more details please check the paper link.

For a better experience, we encourage you to learn more about SpeechBrain. The model performance on ZED (test set) is:

Release EDER(%)
05-07-23 29.7 (Avg: 30.2)

Pipeline description

This system is composed of a wavlm encoder a downstream frame-wise classifier. The task aims to predict the correct emotion components and their boundaries within a speech recording. For now, the model was trained with audios that contain only 1 non-neutral emotion event.

The system is trained with recordings sampled at 16kHz (single channel). The code will automatically normalize your audio (i.e., resampling + mono channel selection) when calling diarize_file if needed.

Install SpeechBrain

First of all, please install the development version of SpeechBrain with the following command:

git clone https://github.com/speechbrain/speechbrain.git
cd speechbrain
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install --editable .

Please notice that we encourage you to read our tutorials and learn more about SpeechBrain.

Perform Speech Emotion Diarization

from speechbrain.inference.diarization import Speech_Emotion_Diarization
classifier = Speech_Emotion_Diarization.from_hparams(
diary = classifier.diarize_file("speechbrain/emotion-diarization-wavlm-large/example.wav")

# {
#    'speechbrain/emotion-diarization-wavlm-large/example.wav':
#       [
#          {'start': 0.0, 'end': 1.94, 'emotion': 'n'}, # n -> neutral
#          {'start': 1.94, 'end': 4.48, 'emotion': 'h'} # h -> happy
#       ]
# }

diary = classifier.diarize_file("speechbrain/emotion-diarization-wavlm-large/example_sad.wav")

# {
#    'speechbrain/emotion-diarization-wavlm-large/example_sad.wav':
#        [
#          {'start': 0.0, 'end': 3.54, 'emotion': 's'}, # s -> sad
#          {'start': 3.54, 'end': 5.26, 'emotion': 'n'} # n -> neutral
#        ]
# }

The output will contain a dictionary of emotion components and their boundaries.

Inference on GPU

To perform inference on the GPU, add run_opts={"device":"cuda"} when calling the from_hparams method.


The model was trained with SpeechBrain (aa018540). To train it from scratch follow these steps:

  1. Clone SpeechBrain:
git clone https://github.com/speechbrain/speechbrain/
  1. Install it:
cd speechbrain
pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -e .
  1. Run Training:
cd  recipes/ZaionEmotionDataset/emotion_diarization
python train.py hparams/train.yaml --zed_folder /path/to/ZED --emovdb_folder /path/to/EmoV-DB --esd_folder /path/to/ESD --iemocap_folder /path/to/IEMOCAP --jlcorpus_folder /path/to/JL_corpus --ravdess_folder /path/to/RAVDESS
